The River Odet

Considered by many to be the prettiest river in France, the Odet springs from the Montagnes Noires. Spectacular in the Stangala gorges, the Odet then calmly threads through Quimper before snaking its way to sea through wooded landscapes dotted with picturesque châteaux and pretty ports.

The Odet is a tidal river, 62 km long, with a navigable maritime section stretching from Quimper out to the sea at Bénodet.

The Nantes-Brest canal

Designed to guarantee supplies to Brest, the canal was completed in 1842, taking eight water sources to supply it. This 360km stretch of water crosses through the woods, mountains, towns and hamlets of Finistère, rushing pas the coloured houses of Carhaix, the lush green banks of Châteauneuf du Faou and heads towards Châteaulin.

Following the River Aulne

A totally relaxed pace of life surrounds the Aulne Valley, whose banks are garlanded with camellias, mimosa and the occasional palm tree. Here, where the freshwater and saltwater mix, you can drift past Rosnoën Bay, the new bridge of Terenez, Landevennec with its abbey ruins and wonderful gardens, then the lively colours of Port Launay.

It's a hushed, secretive landscape with a rhythm of its own.
